The ease of making your own cannabis topical oil or cream appeals to many people. One can use any part of the plant: roots, stalks, stems, fan leaves, flowers, resin, extracts, and seeds. Some recipes require heat and some methods involve long curing times to convert the cannabinoid acids into their non-acid formats.

The medicinal qualities of cannabis dissolve into oil or alcohol. You can fine-tune any topical recipe by adding other beneficial ingredients.

Different carrier bases affect bioavailability. For instance, adding water to creams and lotions compel the phytocannabinoids to penetrate the skin, because skin has a higher lipid concentration than the lotion. On the other hand, an infused oil product will want to hold its phytocannabinoids. To maximize benefits, massage infused oils into the skin or poured into warm bath water.
